Chiropractic Migraine Headache Treatments
Anyone who has ever suffered a migraine understands how important it is to find relief. While it’s easy to diagnose migraines, treating them can be challenging. Unfortunately, there are a number of different factors that can trigger a migraine and each cause must be addressed differently. Whatever the cause, The Joint …the chiropractic place® NC can help you find chiropractic relief for migraines and headaches.
What Causes Migraine Headaches?
Everything from hormonal imbalance to a bad diet can contribute to migraine headaches. Elevated or decreased levels of estrogen can lead to migraines in women. Eating aged cheeses and processed food can cause migraines in either gender. Processed foods often contain additives and preservatives that can trigger headaches. Changes in your sleep pattern can also lead to debilitating headaches. Another common cause is stress. Most of these symptoms can be treated by a change in lifestyle and proper rest. However, a migraine can also be caused by a misaligned spine. The spine is responsible for carrying blood to and from the brain and an obstruction can rob the brain of the oxygen and nutrients it needs. Treating this condition is significantly more challenging, because no amount of rest is going to remedy this type of headache.
Treating Spinal Issues
Spinal misalignment can be caused in several different ways, and it can also result in different medical conditions. A bad fall can cause the vertebrae to shift. Sleeping in an awkward position or making an awkward movement can have the same effect. In most instances, the spinal column is the issue and not the spine itself. The column is a stack of vertebrae which protect the spine. The vertebrae must remain perfectly aligned, because a movement of just a few millimeters can cause excruciating pain. Our local NC chiropractors can help you fight headaches through our spinal adjustment therapy.
Migraine headaches are often the result of these injuries, but they can also lead to pinched nerves. A pinched nerve is the result of the discs in the back putting pressure upon the nerves of the spinal cord. When the vertebrae shift, even just a little, the nerves are squeezed between them. Worst of all, the pinched nerve can also lead to excruciating muscle spasms which may be more painful than the nerve itself. Fortunately, we have the ability to treat these issues by gently realigning the spinal column.
Reliable Spinal Realignment
Your spine and spinal column make it possible for you to stand up straight. The spinal column is composed of multiple bones to provide us with flexibility. Unfortunately, these bones can shift in one direction or the other to cause a number of different painful issues. The spinal column should naturally take a specific shape but it’s easy to rearrange this row of bones. Fortunately, The Joint …the chiropractic place® NC has licensed chiropractors with the expertise to realign your spine. If you’re suffering from lower back pain or a pinched nerve, we can give you the relief you need. Your brain uses your spine to pass messages to the rest of your body. Therefore, a properly aligned spine is actually necessary for optimal health.
